Hello peperfus,

are u sure that the com port have u chosen is correct? Pay attention that some drivers.. like for mobile
device make some virtual coms! For example to me the real com is COM4 due that from Com1 to Com3 is used
by my mobile phone.

And.. are u sure that the com port work? (Sometime I got it broken :|)
